Description
 
Gaso.Line GasMil006 German Skoda RSO 4-Wheeled Tractor (1:50 Scale) "We must do everything we can to promote anti-tank defense, and work just as hard to guarantee successful counter-attacks through the instrument of powerful tank forces of our own."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

Since half-tracks were relatively expensive to produce and required a great deal of raw materials, measures were undertaken to create an all-wheel drive carrier that was simpler and cheaper to build. Hitler, himself, demanded the development of a 4-wheel vehicle which would offer a high ground clearance thereby enabling it to cross rugged terrain.

Porsche developed a wheeled tractor that was powered by a 4-cylinder row motor and manufactured at the Czech-based Skoda munitionwerks. Although an Otto- and a diesel variant were planned, construction moved forward on the Ottomotorausfahrung, which incorporated a winding rope with a pulling power of 5-tons that was located at the middle of the vehicle.
